Human CCL8/MCP‑2 Biotinylated Antibody (Catalog # BAF281)
Recombinant Human CCL8/MCP-2 Protein (Catalog # 281-CP)
Measured by its ability to neutralize CCL8/MCP‑2-induced chemotaxis in the BaF3 mouse pro‑B cell line transfected with human CCR5. The Neutralization Dose (ND50) is typically 1-4 µg/mL in the presence of 0.25 µg/mL Recombinant Human CCL8/MCP‑2.
Please Note: Optimal dilutions should be determined by each laboratory for each application. General Protocols are available in the Technical Information section on our website.
Chemotaxis Induced by CCL8/MCP‑2 and Neutralization by Human CCL8/MCP‑2 Antibody. Recombinant Human CCL8/MCP‑2 (Catalog # 281-CP) chemoattracts the BaF3 mouse pro‑B cell line transfected with human CCR5 in a dose-dependent manner (orange line). The amount of cells that migrated through to the lower chemotaxis chamber was measured by Resazurin (Catalog # AR002). Chemotaxis elicited by Recombinant Human CCL8/MCP‑2 (0.25 µg/mL) is neutralized (green line) by increasing concentrations of Mouse Anti-Human CCL8/MCP‑2 Monoclonal Antibody (Catalog # MAB281). The ND50 is typically 1-4 µg/mL.

CCL8, also known as Monocyte Chemoattractant Protein 2 (MCP-2), is an inflammatory CC chemokine that attracts monocytes, eosinophils and basophils. It is produced by many cell types and signals through interactions with CCR1, CCR2, CCR3 and CCR5.
